What We Can Learn from the Rosenberg Case - Podcast #42

It’s been 70 years since Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were found guilty of spying for the Soviets and sentenced to death.  The left continues to discuss this case and argue that the Rosenbergs (or at least Ethel) were victims of injustice. We can learn patterns of left-wing behavior from observing this case, including that they are relentless and never give up, that they are loyal, and that they use ever shifting rhetoric that often “disguises their power levels.”  I discuss these patterns and then apply them to show how we might expect the sexuality debates in the PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) to play out over time (in part).
